I think it is a NOS AMC replacement part, just not one specific to CJs with an air injection system. It may be for use on 76-79 CJs, I'm not all that familiar with what emissions equipment was available/required where or when.
If you think about catalytic converters nowadays - there are probably multiple choices for one model of vehicle, depending on which state you live in, which engine you have, etc. What's not in debate is that if your vehicle came with a catalytic converter, you're required by state and federal law to have a catalytic converter.
That sticker says it passes emissions standards for those years. The emissions standards these days are much stricter. They still hook up a probe to the exhaust to measure the CO2 and HC output. If it drives on public streets and is not registered as an Antique it must pass todays emissions in those counties.
With Fred on this one as well. Not required when originally build then not required today. Same as seat belts. If it came with lap belts you can still drive it with lap belts and dont have to make it conform to today's standards. Doors as well.
Under A Sun Thats See It All Before...
I don't see anything wrong with correcting bad information. Especially when said information came from a law-breaking "authority" on the subject. Fred, your last post was very clever and made me chuckle. Thanks. Matt
There is certainly nothing wrong with correcting bad information, and especially from a law breaking authority, but attacks and threats aren't necessarily okay on a public forum either.
No one threatened, merely informing the young hypocritical man that he is in error and an apology is in order.
I agree an apology is in order. Not saying we're all taking advantage of the law, but it's a cast the first stone scenario. I'm a hypocrite in the fact that I've attacked people on this forum, so I have no stone to throw. But if I was Jacob, id be hoping for a little mercy and grace right now.
Flynes - You have exhibited the lowest level of character and maturity I've ever seen on this forum. You took a simple subject and turned it into a public vile personal vendetta against an individual. Plus you have that whiny little pet gerbil, Matt1981CJ7 climbing around your A$$ egging you on.
You should all be proud of yourselves.
Moderators - feel free to delete this post, but consider deleting Flynes personal attacks also.
